Thyroid Center

Did you know the thyroid gland affects your whole body? And half of the people with thyroid problems do not even know because the symptoms are common and are often attributed to other medical problems.

At UAMS, our Thyroid Center is a multidisciplinary referral center specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant thyroid and parathyroid diseases.
